What I did over the weekend

Here was the list I had for myself:

  1. Work on Lucky Jam quilt blocks
  2. Quilt RWB (it's been basted and waiting for several weeks now)
  3. Quilt Lawn Chair (same as above)
  4. Start a new quilt (fabric picked and I think the pattern is picked, but that may change)
Well, I finished item #2, and started on item #4.  The RWB finish is posted here.  Now let's talk about item #4.

I've been wanting to make an x plus quilt for a long while.  But it's something that's really just stayed in the back of my mind, zero effort made towards actually working on one.  Until Friday night when I completely tossed my plan out the window for my Nordika fabric, pulled out all my Art Gallery fabrics (I have a bit of Carnaby Street and some Squared Elements) and a generous piece of Kona Ash from my stash and got to cutting.  I used this tutorial, and once I got going, I'm even more excited to see how it ends up!

Here are my first four blocks:

And now, I'll add this to the list of WIPs...and pretty much stick to it for a little bit.  I'm in love!


  1. Looks FANTASTIC!! I really like the Carnaby Street fabric, I so must get some!! Tempted to add this to my ever growing WIPs as well :)Thanks for sharing the tutorial!

  2. Love these blocks! This one is on my bucket list too.
